Spirea Van Houette - Spiraea x vanhouttei

Spirea Van Houette, a deciduous shrub with delicate white blooms, is often used as an accent plant in a home's front yard. The bloom's white petals and yellow centers cluster on new growth and cover the bush from April through May. Even when the flowers fade, the shrub's blue-green leaves are coarse and serrated, maintaining a decorative interest. The leaves turn purple in the autumn. A highly textured plant, it is also called bridal wreath, mainly for the time and purity of its bloom.Spirea Van Houette does best in full sun, though it can tolerate partial shade. The plant will survive slight drought conditions but does best when watered regularly and sited in well-draining soils. It does not do well in moist environments. Spirea Van Houette is frequently seen in landscapes, where it is situated alongside foundations and borders.  Additionally, it tolerates deer and is a relatively low maintenance plant. Some landscapers use the dense shrub as a low-lying windbreak. During the winter months, Spirea Van Houtte's branches provide a haven for winter songbirds. If you are looking for an elegant border specimen, then a Spirea Van Houette is an excellent choice for your garden or front entrance.
